Soon after the CAT 2010 results were announced on Wednesday, January 12, the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) got busy chalking out policy for admissions to its flagship Post-Graduate Programme (PGP) in Management for 2011-2013.


The number of seats for the upcoming batch of 2011-13 at IIM Bangalore is not yet finalized.

Meanwhile, aspirants can check their call status at IIM Bangalore’s official website  by entering their ‘Test Registration Number’ and Email address. CAT 2010 convener Prof Himanshu Rai confirmed that, official call letters to all successful candidates will be sent shortly.

The PGP batch of 2010-2012 at IIMB had 375 students, out of which 78 were females. Earlier, IIM Bangalore announced its admission policy  for the upcoming batch. The admission criteria clearly indicated that not only CAT score, but candidates’ prior job experience, achievements in co-curricular activities, overall academic achievements, and performance at the interview would be a deciding factor for a candidate’s chances at IIM-B.


IIM Bangalore’s admission policy seeks to identify the most promising aspirants for PGP.


“As part of our admission process, we don’t just look at the candidate’s cumulative data on CAT. We look at an overall individual and his/her calibre before welcoming him/her at IIMB. Along with CAT score, performance during interview, past academic record and prior work experience would matters a lot for the candidates making it to IIMB,” an IIMB official said.


Sources at IIMB said CAT score, is not just a selection criterion, it is indeed a medium to access a candidate’s minimum proficiency in the subjects indicated by minimum cut-offs for each section. “Multiple criteria are used to arrive at a composite score for every candidate,” said the official.


All successful CAT candidates strive for about 3,000 seats at 11 IIMs located in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Indore, Lucknow, Kozhikode, Shillong, Ranchi, Rohtak, Raipur and Trichy.
